On April 29, 2015, concerned people in Denver joined others around the country in expressing their solidarity with victims of police terror in Baltimore, Ayotzinapa, and elsewhere by marching peacefully through the streets and public parks. Heavily armed police showed up in large numbers to harass and attack the marchers.
When the march reached Civic Center Park, a cop threw down his motorcycle, ran out into the road where the swat team was riding aboard a truck, and pointed back at the non-violent marchers. Several cops then attacked and seized some of the marchers, dragging them out into the street and throwing one man against a bus. They tied up and brutalized these captives, while other cops sprayed pepper spray randomly into the crowd. Several people were hit by the pepper spray, including a 12-year-old child who screamed in pain. All those hit by the spray remained with the march. The cops attacked the crowd repeatedly, seizing more people for no reason, bring the total arrests to 11 persons. Two kidnap victims had to be hospitalized due to injuries inflicted by the police, though they had done nothing wrong and did not even resist these illegal arrests.
